3. Gary Hume

Psyche, 2001

_

Originating from two overlaid drawings of the same nude young woman, we see Psyche’s hair and arms suggestively entangled, while the delicate black outline of the figure emerges and submerges back into the cool reflective surface of the material. While Gary Hume has often painted directly onto aluminium, Psyche marks his first use of this material for an editioned work. As with his paintings, areas of the metal have been left bare, becoming both elements of the figure as well as the ground.

4. Mat Colishaw

Flesheater 4, 2000

Mat Colishaw’s photographs and videos play illusionary games with seductive imagery of beauty, sex, nature and violence. Sometimes using new technology, sometimes old, Collishaw twists historical themes with the contemporary to explore and question our visual desires. ‘Flesheater 4′ is taken from a new series of computer-manipulated photographs. At first sight we see a dense collage of organic forms, foliage and colour, almost Pre-Raphealite in its sumptuous richness. Looking below the surface we see tangled up in the undergrowth a layered collage of a rare orchid, a porn model and a flesh-eating tropical plant.
